continue+v+ing/continue to 原v?
I was allowed to continue using the library. 我獲准繼續使用該圖書館。
They continued to meet every week. 他們繼續每週見面。
continue+v+ing 或continue to 原v.兩者通用嗎?

Ving- means a state that an action is going on or might have been going on, that is, someone more likely is in the action.
Infinitive: means an action is going to happen, might happen, that is, only possibly, or potentially may happen, so to speak, it's to plan
Some verbs do have some differences while applied in gerund and infinitive
such as remember, forget,
*I was allowed to continue using the library. (more likely he or she was using at that time)
meaning: Someone was allowed to use the library, while he may have already been using it. Out of some reasons, he was forced to stop, the problem was cleared, and then he could go on using it.
*I was allowed to continue to use the library (more likely he was not using it, but probably he was going to use it)
*They continued to meet every week
meaning: In current state, they were not meeting each other. It's actually that they planned to do it, and might possibly meet one another.
They continued meeting ever week. (in this case, the difference becomes very little)>> 作一項事實，他們會繼續見面
